Halfway through the 2012 FIA World Rally Championship, Sebastien Loeb leads Citroen team-mate Mikko Hirvonen by 38 points and more importantly,Â Fordâ€™s Petter Solberg by 55 points. Â With six rallies to go, two of them solely on asphalt, itâ€™s hard to imagine anyone consistently getting the better of Loeb. Â Unless Loeb gets into trouble of some sort, Hirvonen is not going to be allowed to challenge him for the title – and thatâ€™s no criticism of Citroen, just an acknowledgement of the most effective way to win a championship.Â Â It wasnâ€™t so much that Loeb was untouchably quick in New Zealand: far from it as Hirvonen was able to keep pace with him and had Petter Solberg not been on hard tyres for Fridayâ€™s soft stages, dropping a minute a half, he would have been right with Loeb at the finish too. Â Here are some video re-caps of how the weekend went down.
